see the ones with dot?
ones without dot are compulsory. ones with dot, ie. rotavirus vaccine and pcv are optional, they prevent meningitis and pneumococcal disease respectively. its good to get them though. painless injection does not give the usual fever and pain to baby, it is also costlier. there is different opinion about the two. painful injection gives you assistance that the vaccine worked as baby gets fever. finally, its your call...
